I found this sax/violin combination riveting. This is the most incredible music I have heard from this band in that great era.

Been colelcting live Dead since I saw them first in '83 and I had never heard this before. thank you Archive and those who put these great recordings out here for all to enjoy. A truly unique performance. I echo the reviewer below, the '73 fall tour with the horn players (who were on Wake of the Flood and of course Fierro wqas in Legion of Mary) just never got there, pretty tame and flat, save for a couple brief moments in Eyes. And the '90 stuff with Branford was exactly right - cheesy. Perfect word. Branford is great but it was kame, the whole scene weas lame in '90, by then it was almost ma9insytream. I mean that was after the touch thing in '87 so what did we expect. But this does work, I really enjoyed it. Stream it now.

Subject: wow
was not expecting this when i stumbled on this, a violin that sounds like its from the hills of kentucky and a sweet sax, i dont think id want them to sound like this always but it sure adds an interesting touch to this show, very cool and pulled off quite well unlike some other guest musicians

Subject: Free jazz Dead
It is amazing how easily the band at this stage of their career incorporates a full blown screaming free jazz saxophone and strange violinist(meant in a good way)into the music.Being a huge avant garde jazz fan this show just blew my mind.The Dark Star,Other One and Caution are unique and impressive.

Subject: Listen to this dark star!`
These guest musicians play great! Listen the W.R.S. from 1973 with a coupe horn players...It is really week...I thought what they did in the 90's with the famous sax player was pretty cheesy too...but this actually works...I cannot believe I haven't hear this dark star before...

Subject: Truly unusual Dead
Ok, hold on through what sounds as a terrible start sound fluctuates widely, sometimes barely audible, also some speed issues, as the band crawls their way, reluctantly, on erroneous renditions of HTH, BIODTL & HHS, while carrying 2 extra musicians. But as usual, comes Dark Star and pure magic establishes (by then recording sound is quite better too). Blissful stuff goes on between Jerry and the sax. The Dead sound somewhat like Duke Ellington Orchestra, in a weird way. Quite an ensemble!The fiddle on Alligator suits very fine, a ragtime touch. As TC paints a circus ambience, merry-go-round organ style. By TOO>Caution, theyre already flying high and on fire (extra guys much more comfortable nice violin work on TTO). A true phoenix, emerging mightily from nothing really. Youll easily forget the first 3 songs and give it a 5!
